Description

You will find a description on pages 60 and 61 in vol. 2 of the Rock Climbing Western Oregon, Umpqua, 2007, Mtn. 'N Air Books. Crux is on pitch 2(5.9+). Once you've made the "Terrible Traverse" (~30 ft 5.8) you are committed to finishing the final 2 pitches to the pinnacle's summit (5.6 - 5.8). 90% of the climb has fantastic airy exposure making this an Acker classic.

Location

from Lookout follow the ridge left (south) to first large gap in the ridge. Cross through the gap contouring approx. 30 ft where you will find rap rings. Make 8 100-ft raps to the base of the pinnacle on your right (looking out) where you will find bolts on the first pitch of Eagle's Dare. The is a 5.6- bolt line leading back up the ridge from the end of the 2nd rap. After this you are committed to finishing the rappels.

Protection

3/8" SS Fixe Double Expansion. Rappel Chains for rappel into back saddle with a short scramble or easy climb back to the original rap anchors on main ridge?
